Many areas of the country experience extreme temperature differences from season to season. Scorching hot summers and icy cold winters are typical in cities like Chicago and New York, and up until recently, the only real options for heating and cooling the home were central furnace and air conditioners or boiler heating systems and window air conditioners. These systems can often be costly to run and they aren’t exactly earth friendly either. Luckily, new technology has now opened the doors for a new type of home heating and cooling called a heat pump.
Heating Capabilities of Mitsubishi Heat Pumps
Heat pumps are both a heating and cooling system in one and they use wall hung units rather than radiators or registers to distribute heating and cooling to the rooms in the home. These electric units were never before capable to heating cold climates and were therefore impractical for cities like Chicago and New York. However, new heat pumps from Mitsubishi Electric have the ability to heat unlike any other heat pump on the market.
- H2i Heat Pumps: These pumps can now heat effectively down to -13° F and can heat at 100% capacity as low as 5° F. This means that your home can remain comfortable on even the chilliest nights.
- Hot Start: Forced air systems often deliver a blast of cold air before enough hot air is created to circulate throughout the home. This cold blast is eliminated with Hot Start from Mitsubishi. From the first moment the unit is turned on it is delivering hot air to the rooms in your home.
If this sounds like a system you might want to consider for your home, find a local contractor that offers these systems for installation.
